Default I suppose my days are numbered.

Well guys...if you have heard rumors, they are probably true (unless you think I bought a Hyundai). Might as well not drag this out, so here it goes.

I bought a 2005 Chevy Cavalier LS Coupe 5 speed in cobalt blue.

Here is the pic from before I bought it.

These I appologize for how dark they are, but it is dark here right now and I did the best I could.

This is in the Lounge since I think I am forever banned from Your Ride. You can ban me yet as the Bonneville is still in the garage.

I am open to comments and criticism and fun and games. If you are just going to be a dick keep it to yourself.

Not a bad choice! My wife and I used to own a 2004 4 door Cavy. I loved the power and fuel economy of that Ecotec. It'* a fine little engine that puts out plenty of power. Check out jbody.org for more info than you care to know about that car and engine. Props!

I like the color a lot! 5 speed is the only way to go if that'* an option. I REALLY want some gears to shift
What kind of 0-60 times and 1/4 mile can you expect out of her?

I have yet to find RPO codes (haven't really looked), but I'll let you know.

I got the car for $9000. Not bad, about $1600 below KBB. It has 25000 miles which is a tad high for the year, but they are all highway miles. Owned by an older couple who is moving to Oklahoma. They had two cars, and which ever didn't sell they were taking with them. Luckily I got a deal on this baby.

That blue looks really good on the cavy

The 94 had a good run.

Good luck with the new car man. Just refrain from SalsaMacs before driving
